A user is trying to migrate a virtual machine from a datastore to another.

However during the migration wizard an error message prevents him from choosing the right operation:

The host of the virtual machine is in maintenance mode. Migration cannot be performed when the host is in maintenance mode.

The host is absolutely not in maintenance mode an I do not see this message when I repeat the same steps from my workstation.

We have different privileges.


Apply read only permissions on the hosts of the cluster.
